Prosecco di Conegliano Extra Dry DOCG NV

Winemaker's Notes:

Antonio Carpene founded his winery in 1860, having been fascinated with Champagne. A qualified chemist, he was in contact with Pasteur and Koch and was firmly convinced that a similar wine could be produced in Italy. He applied his knowledge to the Prosecco grape (now known as Glera), the majestic variety of the Conegliano and Valdobbiadene zone. Over 130 years of history, embracing four generations of the family, testify to Carpene Malvolti's dedication to product quality and they are unquestionably one of the leading producers.

Carpenè Malvolti is one of Italy’s most famous sparkling wine producers, based in the Conegliano region of Treviso. In 1868, Antonio Carpenè, founder of Italy’s first oenology school, began producing Prosecco using the Charmat method of fermentation in large vats instead of the bottle, which became the standard practice for quality Prosecco. The grapes are sourced from the steep hillsides of Conegliano, where Prosecco is given the prestigious DOCG designation. In addition to its range of fine Proseccos, Carpenè Malvolti also produces the “L’arte Spumantistica” range of sparkling wines from other grapes in a range of styles from dry to sweet whites and rosé.

On the palate it is soft. Aromatic with a fresh acidity, very fine ensuring the persistence of its taste.
